- HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a fantastic treatment for providing a non-surgical lift to the skin.
Collagen and elastin are proteins in the skin that keep it firm, plump, and healthy in our youth. However, the older we get, the less capable the skin is of producing new proteins, and the reserves we continue to possess deplete drastically. This means the skin is less capable of keeping itself in prime condition. When loose skin forms, this is because a lack of proteins has weakened the connective tissues, causing them to deteriorate and the skin to sag. The appearance of the skin can be worsened by weight loss, hormone imbalance, or sun damage.
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a fantastic treatment for providing a non-surgical lift to the skin, using ultrasound to stimulate the repair process and collagen growth. Dermal fillers can also help to provide structure to the skin by plumping up areas where it may have become loose. Additionally, Botox® can be used to relax muscles that are pulling on the skin causing it to loosen.
